Does a Roku TV stream when the TV is turned off

Does a Roku TV (Roku built into TV) stop streaming when the TV is turned off? My external Roku will continue to stream 4 hours after the TV is turned off. 28 hours of streaming a week wasted.

Re: Does a Roku TV stream when the TV is turned off

I don’t know about the Roku TV, but on the external Roku, you can press Home before (or even after) turning the TV off.  There are other tricks you can use – like many TVs turn off the USB port so some people plug their Rokus into that.  There are also smart power strips where you plug in one device (like the TV) as the master, and when it senses that the master if off, it removes power to the other sockets.
